(Production wise and lyrically) This is Rapsody's best material ever.

I was thinking of the best way to describe this flawless album and came up with comparing it to an extremely joyous outing shared with your loved one that you just don't want to end. It is so clearly evident that Rapsody put her mind, heart and soul into her debut album and it shows. I struggled to pick a favourite song from the album because there isn't one I don't like, but if push comes to shove it would be the soulfully haunting Precious Wings.

Please pick up this album I guarantee you will not regret it and remember Culture over Everything!

Rapsody is so real. This album speaks volumes from start to finish. I have nothing but respect for any Hip Hop artist who encourages women to think instead of blink and tells our young men to build instead of kill. This was on point musically (big fat S/O to 9th Wonder)and lyrically. And the album cover is dope! The features: Mac Miller, Raheem Devaughn, Big Rube and Childish Gambino are all awesome compliments to her album. However, it would be nice to get a Lupe or Phil Ade feature on the next album ;)

1 line review: One of the best albums I've heard in a long time.
Most replayed tracks on the iPod: Kinda Love, Non-fiction, Motivation & Good Good Love.

This album is dope. From start to finish, every song is great. In the nearly 3 weeks since I've bought it, I've played it in its entirety about 10-11 times and it's still as enjoyable as the first time. I recommend this for anyone who considers themselves a hip hop head.

Be sure to add this album by one of the most promising artist of 2013, hands down! You'll be happy you did so and i'm sure the cd will get lots of play time in your car stereo.

I love Rapsody. Her mixtapes (She got Game, Return of the -Girl, Thank HER nowm For Everything) all all 4 1/2 to 5 stars, which is what makes this album so disappointing.

In this album you can tell she is a Lauryn Hill fan and this follows the feel and sound of "Miseducation.." but Rapsody adds her own unique sound and style to make this more Hip Hop than R&B, a more grittier album.
MC Lyte + Lauryn Hill = Rapsody
Lyte as a Rock + Miseducation... = The Idea of Beautiful

Great album. Deep quality lyricism - reminiscent of Jay-z. Virtually every song is good to great. She talks about thing both men and women can relate too, but from the women's perspective, which is lacking on most of hip hop. Nothing ditsy like Nicki Minaj.
